“Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese”
~ G.K. Chesterton
I’m always on the look out for yummy ‘tizers. Especially this time of year when friends are stopping by or I need a quick little something to take to a party. I have no idea where this recipe came from, but it’s scribbled on one of my mother’s old notepads. Chances are I was sitting in her kitchen flipping through magazines and copied this one down. It landed like a needle in a haystack, seemingly lost, with the millions of recipes I’ve stashed away.
Speaking of, please tell me how you store your recipes!?! I’ve tried folders, binders, Evernote, and traditional recipe boxes. Seems like I have a system for every recipe. I really would love to know what works for you.
In the meantime, print, bookmark, or stash this delicious and easy recipe for future use. Walnuts & Grapes and Goat Cheese Dip is a perfect make ahead appetizer for gathering neighbors and friends.Print
Walnut & Grapes Goat Cheese Dip

Kristin, I want to be your taste-tester! *nom nom nom* THIS is the perfect go-to recipe for entertaining.
I think I’ve tried all the recipe storage methods you have. Right now, mine are divided into color-coded folders and file boxes. And… okay. I do have “a few” stuffed in kitchen drawers. 🙂
Oh Cynthia, I feel better knowing you might have a “few” recipes stuffed here & there. I’m not a systems person but the clutter is stressing me out! 😉 I wish you lived right next door so we could taste test together.

Love that Chesterton quote!
Megan, I kinda figured you would. Take it as bait to write a poem about cheese! I’ll bring the dip! xoxo

Ha! You know I am not a cook so I find it quite amusing that I can help YOU in this area. But I owe you big-time. My first bread making attempt from your 52 Sunday Suppers has turned me into a bread making queen. I make all our bread now. Can you believe it?! And I just made your hot cocoa recipe again for
For my small, but growing, recipe collection I use Plan to Eat. http://www.plantoeat.com/ref/c280ad7697
I love it! You can import recipes from websites, enter your own and edit any part of them. It also has a meal planning component that I do not use because . . . you know . . . I don’t cook, so what is there to plan, right? 😉 Even without using the meal planning, it’s well worth the small price to pay.
